According to the Orlando Sentinel, the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens to the general public on occasion, starting as early as June 1. They are quick to point out that it appears very random and guests that booked the Harry Potter vacation package are still given their time in the new park, without the general public allowed.
However, if you’re lucky enough to be there during one of the random open times, you can get in line for some Butterbeer, get a wand from Ollivander’s and even ride the new Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride.
Lots of people have taken video of these ride and attraction experiences at the new Harry Potter park that we’ll be posting here, over the next weeks leading up to the grand opening. If we’re lucky enough to be at the park during one of the random public openings, we’ll be posting some videos of our own, too!
To get in to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it sounds like you just have to hang around in Lost Continent or Jurassic Park and pay close attention to the entrances to the Harry Potter park. Periodically, the “gates” will open and you can go in and experience parts of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
